Chael Sonnen at the UFC 148 Open WorkoutsChael Sonnen is never a man that is accused of being short on words or opinions.

He spoke with’s Ryan McKinnell recently at the World MMA Awards, weighing in on the year that was, but also laying down a strong opinion about new UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and her contributions to the women’s side of the sport.

Check out’s interview with Chael Sonnen…

    I half expect to hear Chael call out Ronda and get a title shot against her.

      He’d still get submitted if he fought her

      Chael’s submission defense is subpar, he’d lose 🙂

  • Oswald Cobblepott

    Two big mouth big necks…they belong together!

    no comment.

    Thought it was weird that what Chael had said on a youtube video is newsworthy.

    I’ll give Rousey this: She’s done more for the sport than Carano. Carano gave it attention. And when Hollywood came knocking, she ran for it. Rousey could do exactly what Carano and probably have better acting chops but she’s a fighter who’s still trying to build up women’s MMA. Other than Cyborg, nobody cared about Carano’s opponents. Rousey’s opponents have received more media attention (pre-fight).
